National Dress Up Your Pet Day

Jan 12, 2015 | Holidays

Wednesday, January 14th is National Dress Up Your Pet Day!  Do you have a cheeky-Chihuahua? A lovable-Labrador? A sophisticated-Siamese?  Or how about a beautiful horse, pig, fish, ferret, mouse, bird, or any other frisky friend?  Get involved…wow the neighbors, impress your friends…or just have a good time with your best friend!

We know it can be silly, but think about it; your pet loves every minute they get to spend with you, so why not make it a special activity for you both.  Break up the routine, and add a little flare to their day.   Plus, it’s a great way to show off your pet’s personality…(think about all the awesome photos)…

For the practical: It’s January. Probably cold outside. (Well, cold enough in AZ anyway). So dressing them up appropriately will help them stay warm and cozy.

For the adventurous: Is your poodle a diva? Try a tiara. Too cool for school? How about some sunglasses. Personally, we’re a big fan of shoes…(do they make Converse for dogs?).

For the crafty: You know you have that leftover fabric from when you made yourself some new curtains…get sewing and make a sweet little shirt or vest.

For the shopper: Do you need a reason to hit the mall? Get yourself matching outfits.  (At least some groovy sunglasses).

For the sports guy or gal: Give your favorite sports team a little more ‘cred and put your furry friend in a jersey – show that your a dedicated household of fans!

No matter what you choose to dress your pet in, snap a photo to celebrate National Dress Up Your Pet Day and share it with us!
